Professional Development Day 2019

The Healing Journey Continues: Evolving Consciousness as Therapeutic Touch® Practitioners

The day will enhance the skills of practitioners by developing a deeper inner awareness.  Using self-reflection of their own responses and personal experiences, practitioners begin to recognize an improved awareness of their levels of consciousness.  Practitioners then become more aware of the shifts in consciousness that occur during the Therapeutic Touch process and in their daily lives. Such enhanced awareness promotes a deeper level of connection to all.

About Professional Development Days

Professional Development Days are a wonderful opportunity to share new learning and experiences, to review and affirm what we already know and to share joyful and meaningful interactions on a topic of interest and relevance to all Therapeutic Touch practitioners. They provide an opportunity to connect with friends, meet new members of our Therapeutic Touch community, learn new ideas and skills both for our inner growth and to enhance our practice of Therapeutic Touch, and to have fun together.

Professional Development Days are open to all Therapeutic Touch practitioners – that is, anyone who has taken a Level One workshop. Taught as designed, the Professional Development Day fulfills the educational requirement for maintaining status as a Recognized Practitioner with the TTNO. The Professional Development Day may also count for a maximum of eight hours of the 32 additional hours of continued studies for achieving Recognized Practitioner status.

Some comments from the 2019 Professional Development Day

The best part of the day ...

Being with like-minded people and , of course, the practicum.

All of it!

The beauty of dialogue rather than discussion. We really came to new, shared understandings of the topics chosen by the committee.

New information & insights...

The difference between dialogue and discussion

The idea that we shift consciousness throughout our day unconsciously.  But we consciously shift our consciousness while doing TT.  So TT brings us to an awareness of these "unconscious" daily shifts and we can then make "conscious" shifts during our busy life, bringing more peace into our lives.

Other comments and suggestions...

This day was well-written. An incredible amount of reading and thought went into it. My thanks to the writing team for a job well done.
